5 former wrestlers say Jordan knew of Ohio State abuse
This is nothing more than an allegation regarding an allegation. First of all the team doctor is dead and can't defend himself. It is very likely that he did nothing wrong. For Jordan to be guilty of anything the doctor would have had to have done something wrong, but even if the doctor did something wrong that doesn't mean that Jordan would necessarily know anything about it. Jordan has talked about student athletes joking around in the locker room and we all know that student athletes tend to say silly things about being examined by a doctor. As for genital examinations, I think we all know what steroids do to testicles... cough... cough...

wildrose: It's pretty sleazy to bring up an allegation a decade after the alleged offender is DEAD! That pretty much destroys the credibility of the accusers as far as I'm concerned. As for you theory about steroids, you make an excellent point. College athletes back then were very likely to abuse steroids and so I could see the team doctor being concerned about that sort of thing, but I guess we'll never know since he's DEAD!

Federal claim: 5-year-old was molested at Travis AFB childcare center
This is not what you would at first expect. This is not a case of a staff member molesting a child, this is a case where children engaged in sexual experimentation. Normal childhood curiosity is now deemed to be molestation, apparently. Possibly staff did not provide adequate supervision or there were not enough staff members on duty at the time, but these things can happen quickly. The claim that the child was unaccounted for possibly for as long as an hour sounds like an exaggeration produced by taking someone's words out of context. I can't imagine five-year-olds being interested in sexual experimentation for that long of a time, although anything is possible. Most striking is the melodramatic over-reaction of the parents. Definitely out for the bucks on this one! It would seem that they are the ones actually exploiting their daughter in hopes of the big payoff.

Papa John's founder accused of sexual harassment
It's almost expected nowadays that someone is going to accuse you of sexual harassment, especially if you're rich or famous, but even ordinary people, especially men, are highly likely targets of false accusations.
